The world moves fast, but that doesn't mean we have to. In this best-selling mindfulness guide - it has sold more than three million copies in Korea, where it was a number-one best-seller for 41 weeks and received multiple best book of the year awards - Haemin Sunim (which means "spontaneous wisdom"), a renowned Buddhist meditation teacher born in Korea and educated in the United States, illuminates a path to inner peace and balance amid the overwhelming demands of everyday life.

I love a book that is so thought-provoking that it makes me feel like I'm being reprimanded. But in a good way!! There are so many lessons that invoke truth and helped with my very own growth, which is exactly what I was looking for. Once I started listening, I could not turn it off. Definitely something that will be played over and over again to really absorb the lessons in a deep spiritual, and mental way. So glad I found it!

One of the best of Glenn Harrold sessions I've tried! I love how deep he takes u and literally 'plant' positive messages in your mind. The next day after
listening, i felt so focused on my goals. I figured i wouldn't have a wod of money on my lap the next day, I knew I'd still have to do my own footwork but he gets my mind right to start the journey.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

Never before has world-renowned psychoanalyst Alice Miller examined so persuasively the long-range consequences of childhood abuse on the body. Using the experiences of her patients along with the biographical stories of literary giants such as Virginia Woolf, Franz Kafka, and Marcel Proust, Miller shows how a child's humiliation, impotence, and bottled rage will manifest itself as adult illness - be it cancer, stroke, or other debilitating diseases.

Honestly, i kept thinking this author needs therapy!
The message feels extremely negative. Her 'opinion' on religious issues should be just that....HER opinion. But to continuously recommend going against honoring your parents and doing away with the fourth commandment is questionable. Parents only know how to do what they know how to do. They will have to answer to those things. But
Forgiveness is a part of healing yourself! I was a child of abuse also, but i forgive my parents. I have know idea what trauma they were subjected to. I, now, need to take responsibility of my own life. There are some helpful suggestions, but i could not get around hearing 'HER' issues in this book. I had a lot of SMH (shaking my head) moments. Not sure if I'd recommend it to others for 'help',
but maybe so get other opinions and insights.

The emotional trauma we suffer as children not only shapes our emotional lives as adults but also affects our physical health and overall well-being. Scientists now know on a biochemical level exactly how parents' chronic fights, divorce, death in the family, being bullied or hazed, and growing up with a hypercritical, alcoholic, or mentally ill parent can leave permanent, physical "fingerprints" on our brains.

What is the meantime? According to author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant, being in the "meantime" means being in a state of limbo. Rather than wallow in confusion, Vanzant encourages you to use the meantime to prepare yourself for true love. The first order of business is to clean house. Room by room, Vanzant takes you through a metaphorical cleaning of the soul. This way, when love finally comes knocking on the front door, you'll have a clean house to welcome it into.

Losing your memory? Can't focus or concentrate? Do you have brain fog or tire easily? Have you lost your zest for life or motivation? Do people tell you this is all a normal part of aging? If so, your brain may be growing old too fast, or degenerating. Modern diets, a stressful lifestyle, and environmental toxins all take their toll on the brain. This doesn't just happen to seniors - brain disorders and degeneration are on the rise for young and old alike. The good news is the brain is extremely adaptable and wants to get well.

The ancient Toltecs believed that life, as we perceive it, is a dream. We each live in our own personal dream, and these come together to form the dream of the planet, or the world in which we live. Problems arise when our perception of the dream becomes clouded with negativity, drama, and judgment (of ourselves and others), because it's in these moments of suffering that we have forgotten that we are the architects of our own reality and we have the power to change our dream if we choose.
